Ship not firing? (Enemy in firing arc) Messages in this topic - RSS

Sometimes my cannon (the one you start out with) doesn't fire. I understand that enemies need to be in the firing arc and that my crew won't come up with a firing solution if there's no enemy in our vessel's firing arc but in the last few seconds of Part 2 (a video whose link I'll share here soon as it's up), my ship just refuses to fire. Does the default cannon need ammo? I can only find torpedoes in London so this is a tad confusing.

I scanned my Let's Play video again and I've now pinpointed what the problems is:

I just destroyed a group of bats. I clicked through the choices, picked "throw off the bats' corpses off the side of the ship" and then a second group of bats came along. The "battle (e)/all clear (e)" button suddenly became inaccessible and the cannon locked up.

What did I do wrong? Here's a screenshot:

That seems to just be a bug. If you haven't try clicking on the bats and if that doesn't solve it you'll probably need to quit and reopen the game.

(Also, you should spoiler tag the image so it doesn't stretch the page)

looks like you need to click on the bats, there isn't the info bar above them and if you aren't targeting something your firing solution won't fill. It can also happen if your enemy exits the screen and you will need to click on them again to continue the battle.

Sorry RL means I am not a very active player at the moment. No social actions unless you are prepared to wait and definitely no sparring or other mult-action things.

No Calling Cards or boxed cats please. Will take dupes on the affluent photographers. Other social invitations welcome. Parabolan Kittens usually available, send me an in-game social action saying you want one and I will get one to you as soon as possible.

Always the case with multiple enemies, the game doesn't autoselect the next target if you're still in battle mode, sometimes pressing E will cause the beast to re-engage you, which will also give you targetting profile on it.

Ah. Click on enemies to reacquire targeting. Got it. Thanks guys!

And there I was thinking maybe it was an Illumination mechanic.

This Let's Play is screwed. I thought repairing your ship won't cost you anything lol!

I'll still continue and see if I can survive the dearth of supplies. Big Grin Madam Sretha Bruhn, Bat Swarm Slayer. Big Grin
